Newton Hickman McDowell

Contributor: Dan Clark Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

My father was the third child in a family of four. His parents ran a boarding house in Clarksburg, Missouri until he was three then they moved to a farm. He started his formal education when he was five and walked a mile and a half to school. In February of 1898 his father moved the family to a ranch near the town of Kaycee in Johnson County, Wyoming. It was here that he grew up. After living on the ranch for 16 years he moved to Idaho where his parents had moved because of his mothers health. April 1917 he and his younger brother George joined the United States Army and was part of the Idaho National Guard. Before going to active duty they were assigned to guard a power plant on the Provo River near Provo, Utah. I firmly believe that the Lord is involved in the details of our lives and I do not believe it was coincidence that my father was stationed in Provo, Utah. It was here that he and his brother started dating two Mormon girls who were sisters. After the war dad returned to Provo and continued dating Grace Ross. She taught him some of the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-day Saints. They were married and Newton was baptized and there were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. During the depression Dad built a two room house on 4-1/2 acres he owned on the west side of Provo. One of Grace and Newtons greatest desires was to have a family. It was difficult for Grace to go full term with her pregnancies. On Christmas Eve 1933 she lost a baby in delivery and due to complications passed away a few hours later. The gospel Grace had brought into Newton's life helped him to bear his sorrow and loss. Newton was a janitor at the Utah County Court House in Provo, and it here that he met my mother Inez Jessee. She was the County Recorder. They were married in he Salt Lake Temple on 2 May 1935. When I was born on 4 February 1936 I was six weeks premature. Growing up I enjoyed dad telling my brother and I stories about him growing up on the ranch in Wyoming and stories about his experiences in the war. Sorrow again suddenly entered his life when Inez passed away on 9 January 1950. This was a great loss for him and my brother. I have always been touched by his quiet faith and courage in facing very difficult trials in life. Dad was 45 years old when I was born. He never remarried but devoted his life to raising my brother and I.

Newton Hickman McDowell was 26 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Newton Hickman McDowell was 48 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
